Passion fruit biscuits
This Easter I wanted to give something different (rather than my standard choc egg buying) and came across this yummy looking recipe in my Waitrose mag - they call them Passion fruit melting moments.
I can't lie, I spent pretty much the whole afternoon in the kitchen, digging out piping bags and nozzles and 'You tube'ing' what the hell to do with them! But that wasn't the recipes fault. Now I've sorted myself out, I think they'd be pretty quick next time!
They are AMAZING and well worth it - I ate too many in the midst of baking... but obviously just to make sure they were of a certain standard ;-)
You will need:
An electric mixer
A piping bag and star shaped nozzle
Baking sheet and grease proof paper
And here it is, a lovely recipe from the very wise Waitrose...
For the biscuits:
4-5 large passion fruits (I used 6 small)
250g salted butter (room temp)
60g icing sugar
230g plain flour
100g salted butter (room temp)
150g sifted icing sugar
To make these yummy biscuits...
1. Preheat oven to 180c
2. Cut passion fruit in half and scoop out the juicy bit into a sieve, pushing down to get all the juice out.
3. With an electric mixer, mix together the butter and icing sugar until creamy and then sift in the flour and cornflour.
4. Add equal measure (2.5tbsp) of water (just boiled is recommended) and passion fruit juice. Beat together again.
5. Now the fun bit. Add your nozzle to the piping bag and gently pipe your circular biscuits (make them about 5cm and 3cm apart).
6. Bake for 20-25 mins or until golden. Once done, leave to cool on a wire rack. I paired mine up at this stage, so I had two matching sizes for each one.
For the yummy buttercream filing...
1. Beat together the butter, icing sugar and 2 tbsp passion fruit juice until super creamy.
2. Spread a layer on one side of your biscuit and sandwich together.
